Windows NAS

Aberdeen AberNAS N-Series for Windows have been designed for use with the latest Microsoft Windows Storage Server 2012. Windows Storage Server 2012 offers a number of greatly enhanced capabilities and benefits when compared with previous versions. Windows Storage Server 2012 delivers excellent economics for a shared storage solution by gaining leverage from industry-standard hardware matched with robust storage capabilities. It delivers continuous availability that is designed to protect organizations from a range of failures and to help prevent downtime, and it offers organizations a scalable and reliable solution. Other new features include next generation processors, improved expansion bus tecnology, greater memory capacity and more efficient power supplies.

E5-2600 Xeon Processors

Based on a new Intel microarchitecture and Intel's leading-edge Sandy-Bridge technology, the latest Intel Xeon processor E5 product families deliver up to 80% more performance than previous-generation processors. They offer more cores, cache, and memory capacity, and include Intel® Integrated I/O, which increases I/O capacity and reduces latency up to 30%.

Faster I/O Connectivity

All new Sandy Bridge storage servers and NAS feature PCI-E 3.0 slots. PCI-E 3.0 provides double the available bandwidth of PCI-E 2.0. Next generation PCI-E 3.0 controllers and adapters can attain much faster speeds. Expansion slots are important for add-on cards such as GbE or 10GbE network interface controllers and 16Gb or 8Gb Fibre Channel adapters for storage expansion. The new AberNAS N51W features 5 unoccupied expansion slots.

Intelligent Platform Management Interface

For hardware-level platform monitoring and control functions, the IPMI protocol utilizes an out-of-band network to provide a flawless and secure path for mission-critical applications when regular in-band connectivity is lost or is unresponsive. Remote access for monitoring and administration allows the server administrators to view a server's hardware status remotely, receive an alarm automatically if a failure occurs, and power cycle a system that is non-responsive.

10GBASE-T Simplifies the Transition to 10GbE

The Intel X540 family of products works with existing networks today. It works with legacy Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) switches and Cat 6A cabling. The auto-negotiation between 1 GbE and 10 GbE provides the necessary backwards compatibility that most customers require for a smooth transition and easy migration to 10 GbE. When time and budget allows, 10GBASE-T switches can be added any time to experience the full benefits of 10 GbE.

High-performance and Reliable File Storage for Virtualization and Applications

With Windows Storage Server® 2012 you can deploy and manage storage for server applications such as Hyper-V, SQL and IIS in the same manner you manage storage for traditional file serving. Windows Storage Server 2012 helps reduce the cost of storage significantly by delivering FiberChannel/SAN-like performance on industry-standard hardware with excellent throughput and multiple redundant paths from the server to the storage. In addition, it includes advanced capabilities such as on-line corruption repairs and storage pooling to enhance its reliability. Best of all, your organization will be able to leverage existing skillsets and easily deploy, manage and provision application storage in the same way as it would for their file shares.

Flexible, Cost-effective Options for Shared Storage

Windows Storage Server 2012 includes a robust range of file serving and storage capabilities. It addresses heterogeneous environments, enables more efficient storage utilization and is delivered as a turnkey, file based storage solution on industry standard hardware. Delivering a similar level of performance and reliability as more expensive storage solutions, it offers unified storage with support for both file (SMB and NFS) and block (iSCSI) protocols, allows for a flexible mix of configurations and enables efficient storage utilization with thin provisioning and data de-duplication technologies. Allowing you to manage storage in the same way as Windows Server workloads, Windows Storage Server 2012 takes advantage of your Windows Server management skill sets and tools including Active Directory, PowerShell and System Center.

Continuous Availability for Enterprise-class Operations

Windows Storage Server 2012 helps preserve uptime by enduring failures, at multiple tiers, including storage, network and compute, without noticeable service interruption. Organizations of all sizes will be able to benefit from higher levels of availability with transparent failover of applications and the ability to maintain clustered environments without service disruption. Windows Storage Server 2012 offers high levels of availability, reliability, and performance that were traditionally only seen in datacenter deployments, but are valuable to customers of all sizes.
